Eid al-Fitr: Buhari, Tinubu, others facilitate Muslims, Prays for Nigeria

President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Muslims on successfully completing this demanding spiritual obligation.

While praying to Allah to reward the Muslims for their sacrifices during the fasting season, President Buhari advised that “we shouldn’t forget the important lessons of the Ramadan which includes improving our bond with the underprivileged and poor members of society.”

According to him, “abstention from food and drinks during the fasting period had made it possible for us to appreciate the situation of those who go without eating every day.”

Tinubu Urges Muslims To Follow The Tenets Of The Islam

Alhaji Bola Tinubu, Nigeria’s president-elect, has urged Muslims to adhere to the sacred spiritual obligation of the five pillars of Islam during the Eid al-Fitr celebration after the Holy Month of Ramadan. In a statement released on Thursday, April 20, and seen by Muslim Voice, Tinubu said that with the help of Almighty Allah, Nigerian Muslims have gone through a period of abstinence, self-discipline, self-reflection, self-purification in gratitude and total submission to the will of Allah.

He said the Muslim faithfuls have engaged in fervent prayers and supplications to Allah beyond the self-abnegation and pious living that the fasting period imposed on them.

The just-concluded spiritual exercise, according to the president-elect, has also helped Muslims to improve their moral character and refine their minds in pursuit of higher ideals for which there should be no turning back.

“At the heart of our faith and a major demand on all faithful is the requirement to commit ourselves to wholesome living. This entails love for one another, love for fellow humans regardless of creed, region and ethnicity, love for our communities and love for country.

“To love one another, have compassion, empathy and love our beloved country means we must become better citizens in line with the teachings of Prophet Muhammed. “We must constantly seek to become a better version of ourselves in patriotism, dedication to duty and honesty. We must also never be weary of doing what is right, fair and just to all.

“We are at the dawn of a Renewed Hope for a better, greater and a more prosperous Nigeria and I stand ready to walk with all Nigerians, young and old, male and female, with this opportunity to serve you in honour and dignity. This is a commitment that I have made and one in which we cannot afford to fail.

I wish all Muslims in Nigeria and beyond a happy Sallah celebration.”

In Kwara State, Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has congratulated the Muslim community on the completion of Ramadan and the dawn of Eid al-Fitr.

The Governor, in a statement on Thursday, urged the faithful to imbibe the lessons and spirits of the fasting month and let the same henceforth guide their conduct in the society.

The statement stated that AbdulRazaq, who is away in Saudi Arabia to perform the lesser Hajj (Umrah), specifically congratulated the Emir of Ilorin and leader of the faithful Dr Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari on the occasion of the Eid, praying God to grant the first class monarch more rewarding years in good health.

He said, “I wish everyone a blessed Eid, and pray Allah to accept and reward our fasting, our alms, and our worship with Al-jannah Firdaus. I pray Allah to accept our prayers on ourselves, our families, our communities, and our country, Nigeria. We beseech Him to grant us peace and harmony, and give all the leaders (incumbent and incoming) the guidance to move our country to greater heights.”

“Similarly, in the spirit of the holy month, I urge our compatriots to forgive one another, put behind us all pre-election grudges, and support all government’s initiatives to build and consolidate peace in every part of Nigeria, as well as build a stronger economy in an atmosphere of love and harmony. This is our country; we have a task to make it work with our collective efforts, commitment, and good attitude, keeping in mind that no society is without its struggles,” the statement added.
